Not sure what the future holds for Mr. Kelly. But according to his contract this season - Kelly will earn a base salary of $750,000, while carrying a cap hit of $750,000. Do "favors" include paying someone that doesn't have the support of the front office that kind of money? Ballard is a business man, above all else.
Sticking to the process.
Hoyer was supposed to help prepare Brissett with his amazing preparation and veteran leadership, lol.
At the time he thought Brissett was a good QB.
Not sure about this one, either he has something up his sleeve come draft day or he’s just too loyal? Maybe that’s the issue here with Kelly? Is he being too loyal to him or his uncle?
Brisset was getting paid a lot of money, insisted on playing, Hoyer was getting paid a lot of money, and he’s sticking to his guns with Kelly and the process.
You are right, as stated by Ballard himself in the quote above. He’s sticking to the process.
Sorry for the dual posts was trying to combine, just my opinion/possible explanations for why Ballard has not given him a shot. At the end of the day, if he shines that’s great, always a good thing when a young man can find the error in his ways and become a productive human being. If he flames out, he can’t blame anyone but himself.
